Information about learning, extracurricular programs, student wellbeing, our faith journey and how our school works.
Running through the culture of our college community is the Mercy charism of compassionate care, established by the Foundation principal. We encourage our students to care for one another, and our staff model this through the support they offer every student.
We support the social and emotional welfare of students and their families through effective strategies, recommendations, policies and procedures, guidelines and tools that enable healthy personal development in students and contributes to their academic success.
Learning at Emmaus
Emmaus is a place where curiosity, imagination and love of learning thrive through working together to provide the most effective, engaging and challenging learning experiences for students.
As part of a system of Catholic schools in the Diocese of Parramatta, we’re working together to transform learning for students in Greater Western Sydney. This means reimagining and refreshing learning and teaching for today’s world and today’s learners.
The purpose and promise of a Catholic education is to inspire each learner - student, teacher and family - to discover a meaningful and flourishing life.
Our faith journey
Emmaus is a great place for students to grow in faith and learning. We value each student as an individual and share the values of the Gospel to help them discover the hope that is within and to experience a meaningful and flourishing life.
Beyond the classroom
We believe it is important for students to pursue interests to find what they are passionate about. Our school gives them exposure to a range of exciting opportunities to unlock their creative potential, develop a talent or follow a passion.
Sport is a valued part of a school’s curriculum, contributing to the development of the whole child by providing a vehicle for social, physical, emotional and moral learning. Participation, enjoyment and skill development are the cornerstones of school sport. Representative pathways are also available through the Parramatta Diocese Secondary Schools Sports Council.
Vocational Education & Training (VET)
In our Vocational Education and Training courses students at Emmaus achieve an Australian Qualifications Framework qualification and are taught in simulated work environments that reflect industry standards.
Bring Your Own Learning Device (BYOLD)
Emmaus Catholic College runs a mandatory 1:1 (one device per student) Bring Your Own Learning Device (BYOLD) program where incoming Year 7 students supply their own device for learning.
Social Justice & Outreach
Emmaus involves students in a variety of initiatives aimed at enriching students’ understanding of the world and our Catholic imperative to reach out to those in need. We provide students with outreach experiences on a local and international level.
Future Pathways and Careers
Emmaus students benefit from the support of our experienced Careers Adviser, Tailored Work Experience Programs and partnerships with universities. We help them explore post school options and prepare for a successful contribution to the world of work.
Parents as Partners
Strong partnerships between home, parish and school support students to grow in faith and learning. We recognise parents and carers as each student’s most influential, primary and essential educators.
